Scientists Develop Fast-Growing Sorghum for Biofuel

[Environmental News Service]  American cars and trucks may soon be fueled with sorghum.

It was cultivated in Egypt in ancient times, and Africa still is the largest producer of sorghum today. Now, energy crop company Ceres, Inc. and the Texas Agricultural Experiment Station of the Texas A&M University system have entered into a joint research and commercial agreement for high biomass sorghum.
